ABC News reports that the Uvalde School District has suspended all police personnel months after the deadly school shooting killed 19 children and two teachers.
The District has decided to suspend all activities of Uvalde’s CISD Police Department for a period of time. The officers currently employed will fill other roles in the district,” the district said in a statement.
Lt. Miguel Hernandez and Ken Mueller were put on leave, but Mueller withdrew an hour after the official announcement.
The district has asked the Texas Department of Public Safety to provide additional soldiers for campus and extracurricular activities. We are confident that staff and student safety will not be compromised during this transition.
According to CNN, the school district “recent developments” that “have uncovered additional concerns about department operations” made the decision. However, no details were given in the announcement.
Uvalde parents are suing gun manufacturers and school district
Parents of survivors at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, TX filed a federal lawsuit against the school district and city, the gun manufacturer and a host of other entities over the past week.
The lawsuit says the gun manufacturer used by the 18-year-old who killed 19 students and 2 teachers used “aggressive” marketing tactics.
Daniel Defense has chosen not to conduct studies evaluating the impact of their marketing strategies on the health and well-being of Americans and has chosen not to consider the costs to families and communities like Uvalde, Texas.
The lawsuit alleges that the door’s manufacturer, Schneider Electric, “failed to latch as intended after it was closed.”
The group is seeking punitive damages and other relief.
